Forgiveness and Thankfulness Children's Books {Review and Giveaway}

Disclosure: I wrote this post on behalf of Tommy Nelson and received promotional items to thank me for my time.  All opinions regarding Tommy Nelson and the children's books are my own and were not influenced by other sources.

I truly believe that teaching our children comes more from our actions then by what we tell them to do.  For example, if I make a mistake about something, I always admit I'm wrong and tell Big C I'm sorry.  And I always tell her that I forgive her if she says sorry to me.

The Little Critter: We All Need Forgiveness and Being Thankful helps me to reinforce these two very important virtues.  They are super kid friendly books that teaches a great message.

We All Need Forgiveness is based on the Bible verse Matthew 6:14, "As God forgives, we must forgive each other."  Being Thankful is based on Psalm 107:1.  It teaches children what gratitude is and why we should be thankful for all the blessings God has given us.

You can purchase these same books for $9.99 each at or choose from a variety of other faith products.  Stay connected with Tommy Nelson on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for all their latest products, updates and giveaways.

  1. When my son 5 year old had many health problems and procedures done, he was very upset and kept asking why all of these things were happening to him. I was able to show him that even though he was going through a lot and was often very sick, that he still had so much to be grateful for. I explained how God was going to use this situation to bring glory to himself. And that even though it may seem unfair, God had a plan for this in his life. He took those words and ran with them.... Through those difficult times, a seed of gratefulness was planted... One that I am sure he will carry with him throughout his life.

  2. I've been able to teach my grandson forgiveness by little accidents that happen around the house. Sometimes I might bump into him, or his little brother might accidentally hurt him, and I tell him that it wasn't on purpose and to not be mad, but to forgive and say that's alright I forgive you.

  3. Whenever my children received a gift or if someone did something special for them it was always an opportunity to teach them about gratitude and thankfulness. My children are always required to personally write thank you notes.

  4. My son is too young to experience this, but I would love to win these books to teach him about forgiveness in the future! Thank you for the chance !:)
